Headword: Ὁμόσε ἰέναι
Adler number: omicron,284
Translated headword: to come to close quarters
Vetting Status: high
Meaning to approach. The expression is a metaphor from coming to grips with spears, meaning coming to the same place from opposite sides and not being deflected or fleeing.[1]
Ὁμοῦ ["together"]. And elsewhere ὁμόσε ["to the same place"]: "taking up their arms together they came to close quarters with the enemy".[2]
Greek Original:
Ὁμόσε ἰέναι: ἀντὶ τοῦ παραβαλέσθαι: λέγεται δὲ ἐκ μεταφορᾶς ὁμόσε ταῖς λόγχαις ἰέναι, ἀντὶ τοῦ ἐξ ἐναντίας εἰς τὸ αὐτὸ ἔρχεσθαι καὶ μὴ στρέφεσθαι μηδὲ φεύγειν. ὁμοῦ. καὶ αὖθις ὁμόσε: ὁμοῦ λαβόντες τὰ ὅπλα ὁμόσε ἴασι τοῖς πολεμίοις.

[1] Abridged from Harpokration (and Photius) s.v., commenting on Hyperides, Against Athenogenes 21.
[2] Like Harpokration (see n.1) the Suda passes from ὁμόσε to ὁμοῦ but deals with it differently (cf. omicron 283). The quotation here, illustrating both of these adverbs in the same sentence, is unidentifiable.
